5 Things Happening at Quiltmaker This Week | Quilty Pleasures Blog

What 5 things are happening at Quiltmaker this week?

Mark your calendars. We have another week of inspiration, information and fun quilting stuff to share with you from the staff at Quiltmaker. Here’s what’s happening…

#1. Go Glamping with a Quilt Project

Beach Bum, designed by Terri Vanden Bosch for Quiltmaker July/August 2017

Erin Russek has joined the glamping crowd–albeit by a more budget-friendly approach–from her quilt studio. She’s our resident expert with turned-edge applique. For her Tuesday blog, she’s taking Terri Vanden Bosch’s Beach Bum pattern (Quiltmaker, July/August 2017. Still available NOW. Click HERE.) as her inspiration for a project to try a different way of doing applique.

#2: Our Quiltmaker family is growing!

Check in on Wednesday to meet the newcomer to our editorial staff, Anissa Arnold. We are so pleased she has joined our quilting group! She is an accomplished quilter, already bringing inspiration to us, just from her interviews. We can’t wait to share more about Anissa with you, so join us mid-week.

#3: Line Up for Halloween Treats

Yes, the season is beginning to change. Fall is just around the corner and that means it’s time to plan for HALLOWEEN. Join the trick-or-treaters for a Spook-Tacular Extravaganza on Thursday. We’re going to bring out a Halloween line-up, loads of pattern ideas for inspiration, so many you are going to have a hard time picking your favorites to make.
